The Andean Screen
Global Cultures • 48m
A Northwestern Argentinian teacher leads a mobile cinema crew to the most isolated school in the Jujuy high-altitude valleys, undergoing a 20-hour journey on foot in adverse conditions. Their arrival involves us in the high-altitude educational values, portraying the isolation in the Andean worlds and how communities engage with the earth. “The Andean Screen” is a poetic analogy between cinema and travel; a choral history spun by Silvina Velázquez, principal of the school, whose tenacity introduces a new paradigm for the women of the valleys.
